Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. Rodriguez’s solo exhibition will feature a newly commissioned video work that premiered at SculptureCenter, New York.

Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid is presented in collaboration with SculptureCenter, New York, and curated by Ruba Katrib. The Cambridge presentation is organized by Henriette Huldisch, Director of Exhibitions & Curator, MIT List Visual Arts Center. The video commission, The Maid, is underwritten by Valeria Napoleone XX SculptureCenter.

Art is something very unique profession and I don't think anyone from us can do it because it requires very skillful and talented person. So I think type of event should be held in very university for the students to learn something more about the art.
